📌TJ:”A high amount of MSM speculation & mistakes over the past two weeks means they are being fed disinfo about a report & where Mueller's inv’n is going.

📌What we did learn is Peter Strzok referred to classified crimes that are horrific in his House transcript.”

📌TJ:”Mueller is keeping Trump/RU conspiracy info secret for a reason- it’s a NatSec issue.

It’s not just a/b jeopardizing ongoing investigations.

📌The problem he faces is how to tell the country Trump is a traitor, installed by Putin, while he’s still in office”

📌Barr may have thought he could give Rs a soft landing.

📌Not now.

📌He has to help remove a traitor in the context of our legal structure.”

Trump’s inaugural committee was SUBPOENAED to turn over documents about its donors, finances & activities to SDNY, regarding ALL donors and event attendees; any benefits (tickets, photo w/Trump etc); vendors; contracts; and more.😎

#Corruption
nyti.ms/2UEKrP5?smid=n…
An earlier report from @ABC said that prosecutors “plan to #subpoena” Trump’s inauguration committee, and now, the @nytimes reports that they WERE subpoenaed.😃

🔥SDNY prosecutors are probing the possibility that the inaugural committee made FALSE statements to the Federal Election Commission (FEC)👉🏼its a CRIME to knowingly make false or fraudulent statements to a federal agency.🙄

🔥CORRUPTION🔥

SDNY's **public #corruption section** plan to #subpoena Trump’s inauguration committee.🤗

SDNY reportedly is probing ILLEGAL "straw donor" contributions from #Russia🇷🇺, Saudi Arabia, UAE & Qatar, and shady expenditures to Trump cronies.🤨

abcnews.go.com/beta-story-con…
Sam Patten already pleaded GUILTY to serving as a "straw donor" by accepting $50,000 to buy tickets on behalf of a Ukrainian businessman who wanted to attend inaugural events. Foreign contributions are ILLEGAL, and any donation more than $25,000 is a #felony‼️
Michael Cohen has been "extensively interviewed" by SDNY, and @Trump Org CFO Allen Weisselberg has agreed to cooperate under an #immunity deal.

Tom Barrack, who ran Trump's inauguration committee, was interviewed by Mueller in late 2017. He's a fool, if he's not cooperating.😉

🔥TREASON🔥

@realDonaldTrump has gone to extraordinary lengths to hide details of his conversations with Putin, including taking his interpreter's notes and ordering the person not to keep details secret from other administration officials.🤬 1/

#Treason
washingtonpost.com/world/national…
⁉️WHAT⁉️

This is UNPRECEDENTED. Officials say there is NO detailed record, even in classified files, of Trump’s face-to-face interactions with Putin at 5 locations over the past ~2 years.

Gee, I wonder why.🙄

@thespybrief
#Treason
#TrumpRussia
We *know* that Trump gave highly classified (code-word) intel to the #Russians🇷🇺in the Oval Office (otherwise known as #espionage), and Trump's #treason was on public display in #Helsinki.

Just imagine what transpired behind closed doors.😳

Seems like a thread on recent US practice w/r/t criminal prosecution of foreign sovereign entities might be of interest. @S_R_Anders @YesMomsCan @jedshug @ZoeTillman @lrozen @nycsouthpaw @kpolantz #Mueller #subpoena 1/19
For non-lawyers: to “quash” a subpoena, the recipient (defendant or witness) must show that compliance would be “unreasonable or oppressive.” A court can hold in contempt a witness “who, without adequate cause, disobeys a subpoena.” 2/19 law.cornell.edu/rules/frcrmp/r…
Yesterday’s panel opinion upholding the subpoena and the contempt order rejected the foreign state-owned company’s arguments that it was 1) immune from US jurisdiction and 2) precluded from complying by foreign law. 3/19 lawfare.s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/staging/2018/3…

THREAD: Michael Cohen says @realDonaldTrump *knew in advance* of the #Russian🇷🇺lawyer meeting & the offer of Clinton dirt.

Cohen was present when Trump was informed of the Russians' offer by Don Jr & approved of the meeting‼️1/

#TrumpRussia
amp.cnn.com/cnn/2018/07/26…
Cohen did NOT tape the meeting, but “has expressed hope that this claim about the Trump Tower meeting will help him reach out to Mueller and possibly lessen his legal troubles.”

As I’ve said for a LONG time👉🏼Cohen is dealing!😎 2/

#TrumpRussia

Even Steven Bannon called the #RussianLawyer🇷🇺meeting “treasonous.”😳

And #SHOCKER, as we’ve known all along, there was NO WAY that Don Jr handled this meeting without Daddy Trump knowing EVERY detail.🙄 3/

🤣LOL...before Trump will agree to an interview, Guiliani says Mueller must prove he has evidence that:

✅Trump committed a crime
✅His testimony is essential to the probe

👆🏼These are required for a GJ #subpoena of a *target*. Mueller has BOTH.😎

nyti.ms/2lXN0ML
TRUTH: @realDonaldTrump is *refusing* a voluntary interview and is requiring a similar burden of proof that Mueller would need to get a #subpoena, assuming Trump is a *target* of the grand jury probe — a very safe bet.😉 2/

Trump is increasingly becoming cornered, whereas Mueller has many options, including subpoenaing Trump. Mueller also could unload other #indictments against Trump associates and/or family.😎

Cohen’s case is in SDNY, so Trump firing Mueller/Rosenstein wouldn’t help him.😉 3/

yahoo.com/news/key-democ…
During the 2016 campaign, Stone met in #Florida w/a #Russian🇷🇺immigrant & sometime FBI informant Henry Greenberg who offered Clinton dirt.🤨

We’ve heard this story before from Don Jr and Kushner.🙄 2/

#TrumpRussia
Neither Stone nor Caputo mentioned the meeting when they testified last year before House Intel about their contacts w/#Russians.🤨

Both men have attributed to the fact that they had “forgotten” about it.🙄

THREAD: Remember the claims by @realDonaldTrump & cronies that he'd sit for an interview w/Mueller⁉️

Trump LIED.🙄

Trump’s lawyers have **for months** tried to prevent Mueller from trying to force Trump to answer questions = #subpoena‼️ 1/

nytimes.com/2018/06/02/us/…
In a letter to Mueller, Trump's lawyers claim that Trump "cannot be compelled" to testify.🙄

WRONG! Mueller can #subpoena Trump to FORCE him to testify **in front of the grand jury**.😎

Trump's lawyers CAN be w/him for an interview, but NOT for grand jury testimony.😉 2/
Trump's lawyers also claim Trump "could not possibly have committed obstruction b/c he has unfettered authority over all federal investigations."🤨

Yeah, just ask Nixon about that‼️3/

THREAD: In an early March meeting w/Mueller, Trump’s lawyers insisted Trump had no obligation to talk w/#TrumpRussia🇷🇺investigators.🙄

So Mueller laid down the hammer & told them he could #subpoena Trump to appear before a grand jury‼️😎 1/

washingtonpost.com/politics/muell…
John Dowd, then-Trump's lead lawyer whined to Mueller, "This isn’t some game. You are screwing with the work of the president of the United States.”🤨

After the #subpoena showdown on March 5, Team🇺🇸Mueller agreed to give Trump info on subjects that Mueller wished to discuss. Jay Sekulow compiled a list of 49 Qs that Trump's lawyers believed he would be asked. These Qs were published yesterday.👇🏼 3/

The NYTimes **obtained the list of Qs that Mueller wants to ask Trump during an interview.🤨

It's VERY hard to imagine that details of the ACTUAL questions would leak, unless the negotiations btwn Mueller & Trump's lawyers have BROKEN DOWN (as I was told a few months ago).🤔 2/
Overall, Mueller's open-ended Q's attempt to penetrate Trump's thinking (good luck!), to understand Trump's motivation for his crazed Twitter posts & to examine Trump's relationships w/his family and his closest advisers.🤨 3/

THREAD: Mueller is investigating a Ukrainian’s $150,000 payment to Trump Org *during the campaign* for a Trump appearance, as part of a BROADER probe of streams of foreign money to Trump & associates in the years before the election‼️ 1/

nyti.ms/2HmF0ic
In response to a #subpoena *this year* for an array of records of business w/FOREIGN nationals, Trump Org handed over documents about the donation, SOLICITED BY MICHAEL COHEN.🤨 2/
The $150k donation from Ukrainian billionaire, Victor Pinchuk, who has sought closer ties for Ukraine to the West, was the LARGEST Trump's foundation received in 2015 from anyone, besides Trump himself.🙄 3/

THREAD: Mueller has subpoenaed Trump Org for documents, including some related to #Russia🇷🇺

This is the first known time that Mueller demanded documents *directly related* to Trump’s businesses‼️ 1/

nytimes.com/2018/03/15/us/…
Note that Mueller didn't ASK Trump for the documents, but instead DEMANDED them via a #subpoena‼️

Mueller slapped Trump w/the subpoena in recent weeks👉🏼ordered Trump Org to hand over ALL documents related to #Russia🇷🇺 and "other topics" he is investigating.😎 2/
This #subpoena likely is how Mueller obtained Trump's *personally written note* to Putin in 2013, that was scanned and emailed as a PDF.😂 3/

Mueller Ihas requested documents & interviewed witnesses about “incidents” involving Cohen.🤔

Cohen basically knows EVERYTHING on Trump’s “business,” campaign and political activities.🤨

If Mueller is investigating Cohen, he’s investigating TRUMP‼️😎 2/

#MuellerTime
Cohen played a role in *at least two* “episodes” involving Russian-related issues that Mueller is probing‼️

Of course, one is Cohen’s dealings *during the campaign* to help Trump Org build Trump Tower Moscow🇷🇺. 3/

Apparently, Sam Nunberg's 15 minutes of fame aren't over. He's now on @AriMelber's show on @MSNBC. Even though Nunberg appeared *in person* rather than via phone, it's the same INSANITY‼️

🔥Nunberg just revealed that Mueller asked him about Trump's BUSINESS‼️ 1/
Nunberg just said that he's not a target or a subject of Mueller's probe, but instead, is just a witness. He said that he apparently said something during his interview that Mueller wants the grand jury to hear.🤔 2/
When Ari asked Nunberg against whom he thought he would testify before the grand jury, Nunberg said that he didn't know, but added that he REFUSED to testify against his "mentor," Roger Stone.🙄

Apparently, Nunberg is willing to GO TO PRISON to protect Roger Stone⁉️3/

🔥Nunberg REFUSES to comply w/Mueller’s #subpoena:

"I'm not going to cooperate when they want me to come into a grand jury for them to insinuate that Roger STONE was colluding with Julian ASSANGE. Roger is my mentor. Roger is like family."🤨 2/

THREAD: Did Mueller used Bannon as bait to see if Trump would obstruct the House Intel Committee proceedings and commit Abuse of Power⁉️

Spoiler alert: YES

#TrumpRussia
#MuellerTime
#ImpeachTrump
Mueller (via FBI agents) served Bannon a subpoena on January 9 to appear before the grand jury.🤔

Supposedly, the FBI was “unaware at the time” that Bannon had retained a lawyer *just hours earlier*⁉️ 2/

Here's what strange. First, if Bannon were a "TARGET" (person the prosecutor/grand jury has substantial evidence linking to a crime = defendant), it would be HIGHLY unusual for Mueller to subpoena him, especially w/o first requesting an interview.🤨 3/
